    All those damsel are happy and living together without any problems

    tank dimensions: 1.2m x 0.45m x 0.75m
    l w h
    30 gallon sump
    2 power heads in the tank for water flow
    4500l/h sump return pump

    This a new tank that was moved from a friend that left the country and I added my old tank which was a 50 gallon which I had for almost 2 years without any problems. It is only 2 moths old but all is fine as I used all the water from it and all the live rock and sand.

    I have 3 10000k Fluorescent Tubes and 1 blue.

    The 2 anemones are condylectis-gigantea one white with purple tips and the other purple and olive

    I'm afraid that you do not have enough light for those anemones to survive long-term. Hop over to the Specialist Anemone advice - Marine Aquariums of South Africa forum, and check with our resident expert for a second opinion.
